Supreme Court decision in the wheelchair vs buggy wars

As far as I am concerned, this story represents quite a victory for wheelchair users like myself. ''A disabled man has won a Supreme Court case after a dispute with a woman with a buggy over wheelchair space on a bus.'' I just heard it on the radio in the coffee shop, and whizzed back to note it here. It means that buggies will have to give way to wheelchair users on busses. It's quite an ongoing dispute. I've lost count of the times I haven't been able to get onto a bus because a buggy or two was in the wheelchair space, and the mums refused to move them. While it is technically still a matter of the driver's judgement, at least now we have a decision from the Supreme Court to cite.
